Dielectric Constants and Dissipation Factors of Simulated Lunar Rocks.
NTIS: PB 234 053 :19 pages
Dielectric constants and dissipation factors were measured by the Bureau of Mines for 13 simulated lunar rocks over the 20- to 100- megahertz frequency range by means of the susceptance-variation method. Measurements were made at room temperature and normal atmospheric pressure. Results are presented and some comparison is made with data reported by others. The rocks used include a broad range of physical characteristics and chemical compositions from the large areas of volcanism in Oregon and northern California, and two nonvolcanic types. These rocks make up a suite of rock standards used by a group of laboratories engaged in lunar research. The data presented will add to the basic scientific and engineering knowledge needed to utilize extraterrestrial mineral resources for support of future space missions.
